Zeta Labs to produce a VSS Vintorez AEG
Japanese airsoft blog Gunsmith Baton has news that Zeta Labs, more recently known for the Mosin-Nagant carbine, is to produce an AEG replica of the VSS Vintorez sniper rifle. There is some debate as to the actual variant that is being produced as the pictures supplied by Zeta Labs clearly shows a skeletonized steel stock of the VSS’s sister gun, the AS VAL, but all other design indicators point to the VSS. Whether it’s the VSS Vintorez or the AS VAL, fans of the Soviet designed assault rifle/sniper rifle will be pleased either way. Release date is expected to be around January 2012.
Update: Airsoft Global is offering a pre-order on the new Zeta Labs AEG, and it is in fact the AS VAL variant.
Update 2: Zeta-Lab is producing both the VSS (1st quarter 2012) and AS VAL (late 2011).
